Feature Release Update – Add-on Images

Throwback Thursday 2- Email Header

Add-on images are officially live for PlaceFull merchants! Check out the benefits below and start adding images to your add-ons to catch consumers eyes.

  • Visibility – Adding images increases the visibility of your add-ons making consumers more likely to see and select them. Plain text is boring and easy to glance over.
  • Availability – When your customer books over the phone they may not know about all of the add-ons your business has to offer. Using PlaceFull’s add-on menu along with visuals helps to show all of the products and services your business has available.
  • Added Revenue – Actively promoting and using add-ons increases revenue by 37.3% per booking. Using images is an excellent strategy to promote add-ons and generate extra revenue!
  • Customization – Every business is unique. Use images from your business to make add-ons pop and show consumers why your business is awesome!

Check out this Knowledge Base article to get step by step instructions for setting up your add-on images.
